What is Disk Recovery?

Disk recovery might seem like a complicated and overwhelming concept and the truth is that, it normally is fairly complicated. There is one exception to disk recovery though, and the answer lies within REMO Recover (Windows) Pro Edition software. REMO Recover (Windows) Pro Edition software is a powerful software that is on the cutting edge of technology when it comes to disk recovery. Disk recovery is the process of restoring a hard drive or a hard drive partition that has been deleted or lost. If you’ve ever formatted a hard drive and then shortly after realized that you had some important files stored on your computer, and that you need to recover files, then disk recovery is something that might help you considerably. Just about everyone experiences some form of data loss at least once during usage of the computer. It is a fairly common thing that happens and with a good disk recovery software, you can essentially recover lost data completely. There are sometimes when your hard drive is badly damaged or there is a serious physical defect to the hard drive, and in such conditions data recovery is not possible, but in most conditions it still remains a possibility.

There are two methods of formatting a hard drive. There is the simple formatting which is the most common method and there is the re-formatting method which is less common. Simple formatting is when you usually clear your hard drive, so that it is empty and you can re-install your operating system back on your computer. Usually, your hard drive is formatted as NTFS or FAT file system and usually when you are formatting you will keep the file system the same, and hence the name, simple formatting. Re-formatting is a bit more complicated and it involves changing the file system. You can re-format a hard drive from NTFS to FAT file system or various others. REMO Recover (Windows) Pro Edition software makes data recovery possible in both the situations.

Windows data recovery software

Accidental format, virus attack, software malfunction, file/directory deletion, unexpected shutdown, sabotage are some of the reasons that contribute to data loss. The problem of data loss can be overcome with the help of a data recovery software. But, even for utilizing this so called easy software properly, one needs a lot of technical know-how. Choosing an improper application, misinterpretation of the problem or one faulty step is enough to render your data irretrievable. Hence, you must exert great caution while recovering your lost data.

There are some basic precautions you must take, once you know that data has been lost. They an be summarized as follows,

  • In the event of a hard drive crash or system malfunction, never dismantle the drive or try to fix it yourself. This might lead to permanent erasure of data.
  • Never install the recovery software on the same drive as the missing files. This reduces chances of recovering the lost data.
  • Run file recovery utilities and not drive repair utilities if you intend to recover your lost files. The repair utility can damage the files since they are meant only for repairing of files and restoring normal settings and not for recovering lost data.

Once these precautions have been taken, get yourself a good data recovery software, to recover all the lost/deleted data from the affected hard drive. REMO Recover (Windows) Pro Edition software, is a professional Windows recovery software, that lets you retrieve data from lost/deleted partitions in both NTFS an FAT file systems. The easy-to-use interface embedded in the software, demands zero technical knowledge from the user.

Save time and money by performing your own data recovery

Data recovery can be divided into two very different processes. Those are data recovery in the case of a physical problem with a hard drive or other storage device and data recovery when a system has suffered a logic crash The common thread between the processes is that you must recover your precious files and programs before you can reload your operating system or replace your faulty frozen hard drive. In the case of a physical drive breakdown you should plan on sending your drive off to a qualified data recovery service lab. In situations relative to a logic crash you can probably save yourself some money by affecting the repair yourself. Yes, it may seem like a daunting project but with the proper data recovery software recovering your missing files will be fairly easy.

By proper data recovery software what we are referring to is the exact data recovery tool for the job at hand. While many companies offer a “one size fits all” approach to data recovery tools there is in fact no one data recovery tool that will retrieve lost files in every circumstance. With that said let us determine where your problem may lay and what kind of data recovery program you may need.

Data recovery is simple when you have only deleted a file

If you have recently deleted a file you actually want or if you noticed that a file has been removed from your computer by an uninstall of another program then the data recovery program best suited for your situation is simple Windows recovery software. This is assuming you are on a Windows based PC. If you are on a MAC or Linux driven computer you obviously need specialized software for those applications.

Most Windows data recovery tools will also accommodate some basic file recovery from USB flash drives and camera smart cards. They will not however do a good job with RAW camera files.

Do it yourself data recovery programs must be matched to your system

If your computer refuses to start up and you are viewing a Windows error message or, worse yet, a bright blue error screen then you will need to take your DIY data recovery a step further. The data recovery tool to use for these kinds of problems needs to be Windows based and either a FAT data recovery tool or a NTFS recovery program. These are the two different file placement systems used by Windows. You must match the program to your computer. If your computer is running any version of Windows from XP onward it is most likely formatted in NTFS. Better quality data recovery programs are sold in these two versions. With these programs you will be able to examine the contents of your drive and choose the programs you wish to recover.
